I haven't had beets in a really long time, so I wasn't sure if I'd like them. I decided to try them with a very simple, minimal preparation. I steamed them until soft, and ate them with a bit of butter, salt and pepper. They were tasty. I couldn't get over how they tasted like corn, but with a completely different texture. Why would a grain and a root vegetable taste so similar? Oh, and who is not impressed by their brilliant colors!
